The meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), which was presided over by President Bola Tinubu on Monday, was unable to conclude on matters before it for consideration.

It has, therefore, been extended to a second day to enable it to consider all the memoranda before it.

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, spoke on this to correspondents after the session rose on Tuesday.

He affirmed that the council was deliberating on crucial issues but was unable to conclude, adding that it will resume at noon on Tuesday.

“FEC is continuing tomorrow (Tuesday). There are a lot of far-reaching decisions being taken. We will conclude tomorrow,” the minister informed.

It was gathered that the council had about 40 memoranda before, which had piled up since the last meeting in March.

President Tinubu had sworn in two additional Federal Commissioners of the National Population Commission (NPC) shortly before the commencement of Monday’s meeting.

Those who took their oath of office are Fasuwa Johnson Johnson (Ogun State) and Amidu Tadese Raheem (Osun State), sworn in.

Their swearing-in came weeks after 17 of their colleagues took the oath of office in March.
